MONACO – CIRCUIT DE MONACO, MONTE CARLO
The Monaco Grand Prix is one of the most anticipated races of the year, when thousands flock to the city to witness 1 of the most glamorous sporting events in the world.
Away from the speed, passion, and noise of the race, fans can take a stroll by the famous harbor, mix with celebrities on a night out or try their hand in 1 of the city’s many casinos.
Monte Carlo is one of the most expensive places in Europe, so accommodation for the weekend will not be cheap.
ABU DHABI – YAS MARINA CIRCUIT, YAS ISLAND
Abu Dhabi closes the F1 season in Y 2017 and it would be tough to find a more spectacular setting for the closing event.
Fans will be hoping that the Drivers’ Championship will go down to the final day as it did last season. The world championship competition adds more excitement to the race.
The Ferrari World (NYSE:RACE) theme park is a must visit for racing fans, but the weekend does not have to just be about racing. It is also a chance to dine on some of the world’s best food, stay in 5-Star accommodation and relax on beautiful sandy beaches.
BELGIUM – CIRCUIT DE SPA, STAVELOT
The Circuit de Spa has been home to the Belgium Grand Prix since Y 1950. It is 1 of the most famous tracks in the world.
There’s only one place for F1 fans to go on a weekend here, and it’s the City of Spa itself.

AUSTRIA – RED BULL RING, SPIELBERG
Surrounded by Alpine scenery, the Austrian town of Spielberg is the ideal destination for those who want to spend their time away from the track in the alps.
The race is scheduled for July, meaning no snow, but the mountains and hills surrounding Spielberg offers plenty of opportunity for mountain biking and hiking instead.
AZERBAIJAN – BAKU CITY CIRCUIT, BAKU
Baku hosted its 1st Grand Prix in Y 2016 and is another great destination for F1 fans. The circuit is 1 of the fastest and most challenging street races on the calendar.

The Old City offers an insight into the capital’s great history and for the children, Fountain Square is home to Europe’s largest indoor amusement arcade.
